2013 Volkswagen Eos Review

Test drivers liked the 2013 Volkswagen Eos’ lively engine, upscale interior and unique convertible hardtop design.

Pros & Cons

  • Peppy turbocharged engine
  • Unique hardtop with integrated sunroof
  • Impractical trunk

2013 Volkswagen Eos Overview

Auto writers said that the 2013 VW Eos’ turbocharged four-cylinder engine delivers potent power, and its standard six-speed automatic (automated manual) transmission provides quick gear changes. According to the EPA, the 2013 Volkswagen Eos gets 22/30 mpg city/highway, which is good for a convertible. Most reviewers thought that the Eos offers a pleasant driving experience, with controlled handling and good steering feedback. The majority also wrote that the Eos has a comfortable, engaging ride, though a few noticed that the car handles differently with the top down, and said at times you might notice a vibration when the car travels over a bump, though this is common among convertibles.

The 2013 Volkswagen Eos impressed reviewers with its upscale cabin materials and exemplary interior build quality. Test drivers were particularly pleased with the Eos’ folding convertible hardtop that features a built-in sliding glass sunroof. As with many convertibles, critics wrote that the Eos’ back seat is tight for adults, and best reserved for quick trips. Auto writers said that the Eos’ trunk is also quite small, even with the top up, because of the space that is reserved for the large folding roof. Standard features include heated front seats, iPod integration, Bluetooth and satellite radio. Available features include leather upholstery, navigation, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, push-button start and a 10-speaker Dynaudio sound system.

Other Cars to Consider

Test drivers wrote that the 2013 Lexus IS convertible has a stylish interior with first-rate materials. The IS also drew praise from reviewers for its powerful V6 engine.

The 2013 Audi A5’s folding soft top doesn’t take up as much trunk space when lowered as the Eos' retracted hardtop, and it has more top-down cargo room than the Eos. The A5 also gets slightly better fuel economy, and critics were impressed with its elegant interior.
